    Class Description:

    Jamie Salmon's class is dedicated to the physical, mental and artistic development of the dancer and student whether novice or professional. Her passionate, 'hands on' approach with physical and verbal guidance in a nurturing, and positive environment where she draws from her professional training in the Cechetti, Russian, Balanchine and Bournonville techniques, brings out the finest qualities in each individual student.

    "Jamie Salmon is a truly dedicated and passionate teacher. She is so spot on with everything, and she really wants to help every single student become most of their potential! She has a way of teaching that is strict, but caring! And her class is so complete in every way when it comes to giving challenges, pushing things forward and she takes care of all of her students."
